The Belmond Miraflores Park showcases Lima’s grander, more sophisticated side. Whereas many of the city’s other luxury hotels have garish casinos, the Miraflores Park has the Belmond hallmark of understated elegance, in one of the city’s most exclusive neighborhoods. The hotel also sets the bar high when it comes to service. Upon check-in, expect to be greeted with a cool towel, fruit-infused water and the sweet scent of the lavish tropical flowers adorning the marble lobby. Come evening, be sure to watch the sun set over the green paths of the Malecón de la Reserva, and the crashing waves of the Pacific below.
Bed and Bath
The 81 spacious guestrooms — the smallest is nearly 500 square feet — are arranged like suites, with elegant sitting areas that offer floor-to-ceiling views (mostly of the Pacific Ocean or the lush gardens). There’s a lived-in elegance to the decor, with carved hardwood furniture softened by sky-blue sofas and buttercup curtains. The enormous bathrooms have large marble soaking tubs, walk-in showers with rainfall showerheads and granite vanities stocked with luxe Molton Brown products.
Aside from the sweeping views, one of the hotel’s most welcome perks is the food, from the lavish breakfast spreads served with a panoramic ocean vista at the rooftop Observatory restaurant to the top-shelf pisco sours in the avant garde Belo Bar. The innovative international fare served on the leafy garden terrace of the hotel’s stylish Tragaluz restaurant is also not to be missed. The luxurious Zest Spa is open until 10 p.m. most nights, with treatments incorporating indigenous products from Peru and the Amazon.
In the Area
Lima’s hottest restaurant, Central, is just down the block. You also can’t leave Lima without eating at one of Peruvian superstar chef Gaston Acurio’s restaurants; La Mar is his homage to ceviche. The historic district is just across town (about a 20-minute drive from the Belmond); housed in a sprawling 18th-century mansion with lush gardens, the Larco Museum’s collection spans nearly 3,000 years of Peruvian history and includes a titillating erotic art exhibit. In the very heart of town you’ll find the Plaza de Armas and the cathedral, plus the ghoulish catacombs beneath the Convento de San Francisco, with its Harry Potter-esque library. In Barranco, just a 10-minute ride from the hotel, students, artists and well-heeled professionals come to meet up and kick back with a cocktail at Picas, near the famous 19th-century Bridge of Sighs; then hit Ayahuasca, a sprawling multilevel lounge that offers ultrastrong cocktails and alternative pop rock.

My wife just returned from our trip to Peru to celebrate her milestone birthday. Our first stop - before entering The Sacred Valley - was Lima. We stayed at the Miraflores Hotel -- and were so glad we did. EVERYTHING about our experience/stay at the hotel was excellent. Of course we loved the hotel itself. Impeccable. And, the location is outstanding. But, what truly makes the hotel -- and makes a "stay" more like an actual unforgettable experience -- are the People on the Belmond team. And, literally everyone with whom we interacted was excellent -- attentive, helpful, positive, and enthusiastic. Special thanks to Alejandro Vanoordt, the Guest Relations Manager. Alejandro was amazing. From the time I booked our trip many months ago -- to reaching out to thank us after the trip -- he was the most attentive hotel executive with whom we have ever interacted. He listened to us. Understood how important this trip was (for my wife's milestone birthday). Understood what we wanted to do -- and our personalities in doing them. And identified the perfect "fit" restaurants etc. for us. Kudos to him (we highly recommend Statera and AmorAmar restaurants, by the way). And, Renzo at the Front Desk was extremely attentive throughout our stay -- and simply delightful as a human being. His positivity, enthusiasm and energy were infectious. The entire team at the hotel was wonderful. Our stay in Lima was amazing accordingly! We recommend the Belmond Miraflores Hotel highly. THANKS TO THE ENTIRE TEAM!!! One more thing - the adjacent restaurant and bar is a "MUST". The decor and artwork are stunning. And, the cocktail mixology is a sight to behold (and we like our cocktails).
My stay was splendid in every way. Great room, super food and excellent service. Lovely location too, despite the constant mists. This is one of the best hotels I ever visited. Congratulations to all the staff. I hope to return one day.
